Super Save on the corner of Riverland Road and Garden City Boulevard has survived a lot over the past 23 years. A new Food Lion opened directly across the street, and we survived. Food Lion down on Smith Mountain Lake took some of our summer business, but we survived. Kroger on the lake took some of our business, but we survived. Walmart Super Center opened at Valley View, but we survived. Ukrops opened but closed shortly after opening. But when the government closes off your entrance, takes out your stoplight and makes it very difficult to get into your business, how can you survive? Ukrops got tax incentives and red lights. How is that fair?
We need your support. There are not many independently owned and operated grocery stores left. Although I have retired, my daughter and son-in-law are still running the store, so give them and our other employees, some whom have been with us 23 years, your support. Write or call Roanoke city’s transportation manager Mark Jamison. Call the Virginia Department of Transportation and stress your concerns.
If we stand together, we will be heard. We would like to survive and serve our community and surrounding communities for another 23 years. Thank you.
Owner, Piggly Wiggly Super Save
